After the longest and strangest year we have ever known, 2020 is finally drawing to a close. It has been a year of insanity, loss, unity and so much more. But it has also been a period when we have added some terms to our vocabulary that we could have never imagined.
Here is an A-Z of terms that sum up 2020!
B: Banana Bread (this seems so long ago!)
C: Coronavirus (this was the obvious one, but close contact came close too!)
D: Department of Health
E: Education Minister (spoken like a true Leaving Cert 2020 student)
F: Flu-like symptoms
G: Golf gate (oh the drama)
I: Influencers in Ibiza (Can I have bonus points for that beautiful alliteration please!)
J: Joe Biden (Easy though it is to forget, the pandemic was not the only event of the year!)
T: Two metre distance
L: Lockdown (this applies to the original and the sequel! Please don’t make it a trilogy!)
P: Phased reopening
R: Reproductive Rate (flying it with this alliteration!)
S: Social distancing (staycation and sanitize were fantastic runners up)
U: Unprecedented (We are so ready for precedented times!)
Y: Yellow (Stretching it slightly here perhaps but this is in relation to that specific shade of yellow of the COVID-19 campaign
I don’t know about you but I am more than happy to leave all of these A-Z terms in 2020!
